Now that the Cleveland Cavaliers have agreed to a one-year, $2.1 million deal with veteran point guard Derrick Rose, the team can now focus on making another run at the NBA championship.
Of course, nobody from the Cavs could be more thrilled about Rose joining the team than LeBron James, who had just sent a tweet welcoming the former MVP to The 216:

Cleveland.com’s Joe Vardon also stated that James is “eager to see” Kyrie Irving get traded following his groundbreaking request to be traded. The Cavaliers did their King well by taking swift action in signing Rose as Irving’s replacement at that.
Although Rose is far from his peak form due the number of injuries he’s suffered throughout his NBA career, he’s still a viable starting point guard at just 28 years of age who can very well revitalize his career in Cleveland playing alongside James. LeBron, meanwhile, is just glad that there’ll be less drama regarding Irving’s situation now that the Cavs have found a solution to their problems in Rose.
